As I have said before, I have a natural curiosity that tends to jump from subject to subject, always searching for new information. Occasionally, though, my imagination will jump straight into a brick wall and I’ll be at a loss for creative thought. Impatient as I am, I don’t like to wait for new ideas to come to me; rather, I pursue inspiration.
There are as many ways to find inspiration as there are inspiration seekers, so I can only write about what has worked for me. Below is a table of contents to this 5-part series:
Part 1. A visit to the library — that storehouse of knowledge is sure to contain an abundance of inspiring thoughts.
Part 2. Searching the organized chaos of the internet — be warned, you can get lost for hours.
Part 3. Going exploring — gems of inspiration can be found closer to home than you think.
Part 4. Rediscovering old ideas — forgotten notes from years past may just contain that bit of genius you’re looking for.
Part 5. Brainstorming as a team — creative friend(s) + random conversation = idea generator.
